Default Returned the G2X , waiting for the HTC Sensation 4G

Usually I am not that cell phone picky , but I never did enjoy this phone.

1. Horrible screen IMO(when compared against the Amoled screens) LCD flashlight corners really bothered me.

2. Form factor : It is too long for the screen size , too much wasted space on the bottom.

3. Power button on top was awkward ( maybe too used to Samsungs)

4. Earpiece quality seemed muffled and too quiet sometimes

5. Picture quality below average

Thats it. Will be going back to either galaxy 4g or Nexus S for now. Looking forward to the HTC Sensation 4G on June 8th or the Galaxy S2 .
I realize that like many things , cell phone preferences are very subjective. If you are enjoying the virtues of this phone( of which there are many) have fun till the next greatest thing

Sad to see you go. Good luck with the sensation, it should be an amazing device.

Sensation is a great device but have fun waiting months for unlocked bootloader,kernels and of course CM7. If ur interested in any of those features, be patient very patient

I believe cyanogen said he was moving away from HTC until they stop locking the bootloader. The sensation may not actually see cm7.

I guess HTC getting too cocky and going the motofail route only time will tell if they made the right decision, but for instance you can see currently the amount of motofail atrix in the market section.

My brother got the HTC Thunderbolt which is the qHD LCD display. It too has bleed LCD issue. I'm assuming this is very common issue for LCD display.

Still deciding my self. I'll probably end up keeping it though. Any minor issues, except for lcd bleed, will most likely be addressed by the devs.

I can't fathom why you would return the G2X because of the Sensation. The screen issues will be exactly the same, and everything else will be worse because stock ROMs *always* have bugs. The difference is the G2X is days/weeks away from its being fixed, and the Sensation will be lucky to get updates at all the way HTC is going.
T-Mobile G2x - CM7.2
ASUS Transformer - Prime v1.4

Nexus One - CM7, Retired
MyTouch 3G - CM4.2, Retired

Gudluck with your decision. Your reasons are all minor problems for me. Ive been very happy with G2x and love the fact that the world's greatest android dev, Cyanogen is supporting the phone himself. It only means a clear and brighter feature for G2x. I wont have to worry getting left behind with him supporting G2x.

And gudluck with sensation's poor battery life knowing htc the battery wouldn't even last for half a day.
